October Update!

Crikey, it's a week into October and a whole month since I last posted.  What a busy month (nay...manic month) it has been.  We finally moved out of our house on 21st September after a very stressful few months.  I won't go into the nitty gritty but on the Friday before we were expecting to move on the Tuesday I gave the solicitor an ultimatum: either we exchanged on the Friday and completed on the Tuesday or WE WERE PULLING OUT and forgetting the whole thing.  I fully expected the move to fail but the deal was pulled off at the very last minute.  So here we are at last 😃

As you can see from the 'before' shot at the last house......


...and the 'after' one at the new bungalow below, we are nowhere near as overlooked as we were.  The garden is flatter, bigger and, sadly, now a blank canvas once more.  We are planning what to do with it but it will have to wait until next Spring for any work to be done on it.  We are plumb tuckered out.
On the left hand side is our new garage which will become G's play area as he no longer has a shed 😅



Once again I have taken possession of the smaller bedroom.  Our Son in Law has not only put up a shelf for me ......
 


But he has bought me a small wardrobe which he and our lovely 14 yr old Grandson duly assembled and anchored to the wall for safety......


It's plenty big enough.  I don't have that many clothes and my chest of drawers is great for folded jumpers, nightwear and undies.



Whilst unpacking I found these flipflops which I had totally forgotten about.  I'm a sucker for a bit of animal print 😆


Take care everyone wherever in the world you happen to be.  I'll try not to leave it so long before my next post x

  2. Your garden looks like a wonderful blank canvas and the Winter months will give you lots of time to make plans for it ... once you have gotten your breath back after the move. And I think it's only right that you lay claim to the second bedroom if G has claimed the garage :-)

    Happy New Home xx

    1. Thanks so much, Sue, I think we'll enjoy taking time to plan the garden for next year. G is already planning a workshop in the garage 🤣

  3. Blank will be fun when you get your breath back. And so worth itto have just the one window to 'hedge' instead of a row of upstairs.

    1. Indeed, Diana, we might possibly put a bit of trellis on top of the fence for screening. That's all it would take for complete privacy.

  5. That's great! You did it. Moving is always stressful. That's great that you have more privacy in your new garden. That makes such a big difference.

    1. It does indeed, Stephenie, the garden feels much more private and we are surrounded by trees so everywhere smells much fresher and calming.
